Hi all!

I'm sure these forums get threads like this all too frequently, but I really am in a pickle as to what champion I want to purchase next. I've found myself enjoying Tank role in my group of comrades, and I've particularly taken to Nautilus and Tryndamere. I also don't mind playing as AD Carries, namely Ashe, with an occasional AP Teemo (since I only have a handful of champions).

I'm at roughly 4700 IP at the moment. I've been trying to find a heavy sort of champion, but not one that's purely a damage sponge like Mundo or Sion. I've looked at Thresh, Darius, and Galio so far and I can't seem to make up my mind. If anyone has any suggestions or critiques of my prospects, please leave a comment.

Thanks!

well, First off, Tryndamere isn't a tank.

Anyways, Jarvan isn't very strong in lane, but he's still a decent jungle, as is Hecarim.

Galio is pretty lame right now, and thresh is the best support in the game if people know how to use your lanterns.

Darius is OK, not the best, but he's decent, he's an all in champion though, so don't pick him if you think you'll need to disengage.

Cho'gath is another really strong pick, who can sustain in lane and in jungle, and is just a general pain to fight against.

galio isn't lame, he's just a niche pick

If you like being in the front line taking a lot of the brunt of your opponents, i'd strongly recommend singed. He doesn't cost much IP wise, he has an interesting laning phase, deals significant damage in a team fight, and is evasive enough to always get out of team fights with just enough health to survive.
If I helped you out, be sure to throw me a +Rep!

Singed is love in its purest form.

Mundo goes where he pleases.


And pleases, where he goes.

Jarvan is easily counterable by a lot of popular tops these days.

His strength in the jungle is quite impressive, which makes him a better candidate there than in lane. He still works in lane, just not as well, and I reserve him more or less for counter reasons if I'm going top.

As it happens, Throatslasher's Tier list lists him as a Tier 4 Solo top champion. This is NOT good.

Singed, Cho'Gath, Dr. Mundo

As for ADC, Miss Fortune (easy mode) and Twitch (more skill required).
